Biography

Dryden Vos was the leader of a powerful criminal organization called The Crimson Dawn. He was a close ally for the Galactic Empire, Darth Maul and also for Tobias Beckett. He was firstly going to kill Beckett for his failure, but Han offered to create a coaxium generator instead of find one ready. Vos agreed, and promised to give them a huge amount of money in return. Han came with fake coaxium in a generator, and handed it to Vos, who was really impressed by Han for cheating him but was informed by Beckett about the plans to trick him and gain the money.

Dryden asks Qi'ra then what to do with a person which he trusts and then he (or she) betrays him. Qi'ra replies that he should sacrifice something beloved. He then orders to kill Han, as an act of her sacrificing her beloved man for him. However, Han revealed that he stole the real coaxium on time from The Cloud Raiders and insisted that it stays with him. Beckett then betrayed Vos, and stole both the coaxium and the money. Beckett was next going to sell the generator to a gang on Tatooine. Dryden offered Han Solo an alliance against Beckett to hunt him down together.

However, Solo disagreed. Dryden and Han fought, and in the middle of their battle, Qira attacked Han. Dryden explains that he trained her well and that she cannot leave him. However, Han tells her that she can leave, and that he knows she can. Qira then stabs Dryden Vos in the heart, and fights him until she manages to kill him.

Trivia

  • Despite being the main antagonist and having driven the plot, served as the direct threat, and shown to be just as sadistic as Beckett, Dryden only has 20 minutes of screentime.
  • Paul Bettany has confirmed that Vos is not human, that he is actually an alien, as the marks on his face are not scars and are part from his species features.
